The bottom of the fifth inning had all the makings of a giant missed opportunity for the Orioles, who had the bases loaded and no outs.

Matt Wieters drew a leadoff walk, Joe Mahoney doubled and Brian Roberts walked, prompting acting Boston manager DeMarlo Hale to pull Scott Atchison from the game.

Lenny DiNardo entered the game and struck out Nick Markakis. He then fanned Luke Scott. However, he still had to retire Vladimir Guerrero, and he was unable to do it. Guerrero's line single to center field brought in two runs and tied the score at 3.

Jim Johnson just turned in a scoreless top of the sixth.
